    I hope this doesn't become a lingering problem all year . . . just twisting wrong can cause further damage

    Its only week 3

    This Channel is very informative and this man knows his stuff.

    If anyone is playing Fantasy Football this year. This channel is a valuable asset

    He needs to. Unless there is structural damage he can’t really do more damage. It’s about pain tolerance. This game on Monday is a huge early season game and we need him as a decoy at the very least.

    I think he'll play and tough it out for as long as he can. Despite the criticism he gets around here, he has played hurt in the past and gutted out games.

    Though it seems to me when he does play hurt they use him as a decoy. He helped me win my first week of fantasy football, now he's hurt (again).
    That's okay I didn't get to draft my team, was helping my daughter move, and the computer drafted me 6 backup receivers!

    Guess he was hurt on that 2nd TD grab in week one. Wonder if it was bothering him all week and was why he didn't see much action last Sunday and then really aggravated it when he caught that ball in the 4th that set them up for a FG

    If really just a bruise. Extra padding and a shot will help.
    Home game opener, and against a division rival. He will play.

    Did anyone see anything on which play it happened on?

    Almost had to have been his catch on the final drive if he was still in there.

    It's a mistake to assume it happened on that one play. It could have happened earlier in the game and he stayed in because the team needed him.. They could have given him a shot at halftime that wore off by the end of the game and he really felt it at the end there..

    It almost couldn't have. Watched that play over frame by frame and I couldn't see where his ribs were impacted.

    Would they really have shot him up at halftime instead of being cautious in week two?

    Not saying it's impossible....but from the couch, but it was tough to know anything happened to Cooper.

    I'd tend to lean toward it not being serious and I wouldn't expect him to miss this week's game
